The presidential campaign has become a confusing war of claims and counterclaims to the point of difficulty in discerning the truth. If you haven't paid close attention to the news over the past five years from a source that provides access to both sides, it's easy to be misled. But Democrats calling Republicans liars is like the pot calling the kettle black.
An example is the TV spot where Mitt Romney and Bain Capital are blamed for the wife of a former steelworker dying of cancer. President Obama claimed no responsibility or control over his super PAC's ad, but a 2008 video clip shows Obama saying, “of course candidate John Edwards has control over his super PAC ads.” The woman in charge of the commercial got caught lying to the news about her knowledge of the situation. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, got caught lying on a live TV news spot about the same thing. When pressed by the interviewer, she recanted her comments.
If you're undecided or an Obama supporter, you owe it to your children and grandchildren to see “2016: Obama's America,” a documentary that examines Obama's past and provides insight as to why and how he's trying to destroy America. If you don't agree with it, at least you'll see why so many are against Obama and that it has nothing to do with race.
